Michigan Lands QB Tate Forcier

Paul SalmanSenior Analyst IAugust 31, 2008

Although he said he would not rush to a decision, Tate Forcier did commit to Michigan during his visit this weekend.

After meeting with Coach Rich Rodriguez yesterday morning, Forcier said he '"got that feeling" and did not want to second-guess himself. He walked into Rodriguez's office and gave him the verbal commitment face-to-face.
After watching this weekend's game, it is safe to say Forcier can see himself competing for and winning the starting job as a freshman. Not to say either QB played that poorly, however neither Sheridan nor Threet displayed the true ability to lead this Michigan team and be able to run the new offense during their home loss to Utah.
Forcier has not commented on canceling any future visits he has planned like Penn State next week. Hopefully, the Penn State coaches will not give up and will continue to recruit him.
As we saw with Kevin Newsome, who de-committed from Michigan last month, these kids do have changes of heart, and it is important not to end the recruitment process until signing day in February.
